===Recording===
 
 
Recording for ''Viva Hate'' commenced at The Wool Hall studios in Bath, England in early October and would last until late December. Street recruited Durutti Column guitarist [[Vini Reilly]] and session drummer [[Andrew Paresi]] to back Morrissey, with Street himself taking over bass duties.
 
 
===Release===
 
 
''Viva Hate'' was was released on 14 March 1988 by HMV Records and debuted at #1 on the UK charts.
 
 
===Re-releases===
 
 
EMI, in celebration of their 100th anniversary, released a special edition of ''Viva Hate'' in the UK in 1997. In addition to featuring brand new artwork, including a new cover shot by Eamonn McCabe, the Centenary Edition features 8 bonus tracks — only one of which was contemporaneous with the album. Surprisingly, "[[Hairdresser On Fire]]" does not appear on this version despite originally appearing on the North American version of the album as a bonus track.
 
 
On 02 April 2012, a newly remastered special edition of ''Viva Hate'', supervised by Stephen Street, was released. Controversially, Morrissey chose to omit one of the album's original tracks, "[[The Ordinary Boys]]," and include the session demo "[[Treat Me Like A Human Being]]." In addition to the track list changes, the intro and extended fadeout of "[[Late Night, Maudlin Street]]" has been edited. The original album artwork was restored for this release, however, the typeface font on the front cover has been changed, as was the case with the 2011 [[Bona Drag]] remaster.

Information

I Don't Mind If You Forget Me is a song that appears on Morrissey's debut album, Viva Hate. It was co-written and produced by Stephen Street.

Lyrics

I don't mind I don't mind if you forget me Having learned my lesson I never left an impression on anyone

So now you send me your hardened "regards" When once you'd send me "love" Sincerely I must tell you Your mild "best wishes" They make me suspicious

I don't mind I don't mind if you forget me Having learned my lesson I never left an impression on anyone

The pressure to change, to move on Was strange and very strong So this is why I tell you I really do understand BYE BYE

I don't mind if you forget me No, no, no, no, no, no, no

You can only be strong for so long It may not eat you but it will beat you So this is why I tell you I really don't understand, this time REJECTION IS ONE THING BUT REJECTION FROM A FOOL IS CRUEL REJECTION IS ONE THING BUT REJECTION FROM A FOOL IS CRUEL

And I don't mind if you forget me I don't mind if your forget me
